    Oh cuz I ran off of emerald food and I've been feeding my fish Frozen brine shrimp cubes. I'll soon buy emerald again since brine isn't very nutritional then..

    I soak my brine in some phytoplankton mixed with saltwater for a few minutes before using a eye dropper..

    I feed mine a Coral Creole or mysis. They rarely open when the lights are on, so feeding at night solves 2 probs. 1. the coral are open for feeding 2. the fish don't steal as much. I spot feed each polyp at least an hour after lights are off. As mentioned, they retract with the food quickly enough to usually negate my curious shrimp.

    I spot feed my sun coral aright after it opens after lights out. Never seem to have the fish being pigs issue then :) Also the dome Idea is a good one, works well when I started with my sun coral. But I got lazy :|
